Last night, I was lying in bed and suddenly started to panic. It hit me that, pretty soon, there will be another being in our house and it won’t just be me and Turner during the day! He and I have gotten such a great schedule down. We have our daily routine while Stew is at work. Plus, he’s at the age that I can have full on conversations with him, and he’s so easy! He’s my little buddy.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely excited, but the reality of major change is setting in! I want to get all of my one-on-one Turner time in while I still can. I’ve been wondering how I will muster up the strength to soak up all the fun things summer has to offer as I get bigger, more tired, and hotter (literally). For Turner’s sake, I try to get out of the house and do something fun once a day, which is usually before nap time. After his nap, I get supper ready and like to hang home.
I’ve finally gotten enough energy to take him to the pool right around the corner. It turned out to be so much easier than I thought! There is a baby pool there that he can play in without me needing to be in there holding him. So we bring some toys and he plays in the pool while I sit on the edge with my feet in the water.
Sometimes he wants to take a dip in the big pool. So we’ll do that, have a snack break, and play catch. But for the most part it’s quite relaxing actually. My sweet little baby boy is getting so big! It’s hard to believe that he’ll be a big brother. He’s so sweet and loving, it’s going to be amazing to watch!
